The Symphonic Band is the premier instrumental ensemble dedicated to the excellent performance of advanced literature, including original works for band as well as outstanding transcriptions. The aesthetic aspect of the music is stressed and special emphasis is placed on musical style. The culminating experience for the ensemble is the Annual Spring Concert sponsored by the Board of Counselors.
Membership is open to all University students by audition. The Symphonic Band rehearses four days a week during the spring semester and students receive one hour of academic credit. This credit may be used to satisfy academic and elective requirements.
